I'm not sure Debian reverted the upload only to avoid SONAME bump, there
was probably a problem in the upstream code itself, but I'm not sure
about this. Maybe Jonas could shed some light.

According to NBS page, we only have to rebuild three packages, so I'd
manage them and leave uw-imap as is, unless there is a strong rationale
behind this. The only action I'd take is syncing 8:2007b~dfsg-1.1 from
unstable (fix for #510918).
